It's no news that the French have a low incidence of cardiovascular illness relative to Americans (although the numbers have increased since the arrival of Fast Foods in France). In the United States, we are told that this is because the French drink a lot of red wine, and certainly that is an important part of the story. But there's more to it - at least according to the Foie Gras salesman at my local, organic food market! This guy claims that one of the reasons French people have healthy hearts is the amount of Foie Gras they eat! That's right - this trafficker in the fatty livers of either duck or goose claim them to be as good for us as olive oil! The notion seems a little far-fetched to me, but apparently the fat in Foie Gras is monounsaturated (or is that poly?), making it to other animal fats what fish oil is to butter! Who knew?!
Tiela Aldon Garnett...
...was born some time ago in Los Angeles, California...
Her father was a famous Motion Picture and Television director and her mother was an actress. There was a 31-year difference in their ages (her father was older) and she was their only child. If you want to know more about her early life and family, you'll have to read the book, but it's not out yet.
She has two children, Taylor and Chloe. Her children think she's "special." Taylor was born in Paris, France and Chloe was born in Brooklyn, New York. They're grown up now. Mostly. Both of her children are artists.
If you want to see what the author's family looks like, there are pictures under the "Photo Album" tab!
Tiela discovered her passion somewhat late in life, and that's okay. She's appreciating every minute of the journey, and isn't that the goal? She is happily committed to the process of her evolution, and has come to accept her humanness. She will joyously assist you in your process, too, because she's an International Life Coach!
She has stories, recipes, photographs, and occasionally wisdom to share.
Please enjoy her blogs about Paris, her Paris journal, and her stories, all under the "My Writing" tab, as well as her Paris Recipes!
